DIY Drinks From Your Favorite Preserving Bloggers

Last summer, I spent a week writing about a few homemade drinking vinegars, boozy infusions and fruit syrups that can be stirred into fizzy water, cocktails and other cool drinks. This summer, I wanted to feature more of these refreshing sips (though I still can’t get enough of the Rosemary Lemon Syrup I wrote about during that time last year).

However, since this has been something of an intense summer, I knew I wouldn’t be able to do it all on my own. So I invited some of my favorite preserving bloggers to join in the fun and contribute to Drink Week 2012. They were game and have been brewing, infusing, fermenting and simmering up some mighty tasty things for the last week.

Check back to this post daily, I’ll be linking up to all the contributors as each of their posts go live.

    Yum! I can’t wait to try some new recipes. I tried my first drinking vinegar at Whiskey Soda Lounge here in PDX and it was amazingly good. I’d love to make something like that at home.

    I tossed some dehydrated ginger bits into the end of a bottle of vodka. No simple syrup, just dried ginger bits. It makes for a really nice dry ginger taste without the heavy sweetness of a lot of liqueurs. It also makes for a nice mixer without having to layer multiple simple-syrup-laden parts together. I use it in my pancake and french toast batter, and in weekend smoothies – dark berries, lime juice, cran-rasp (or blue or pomegranate), and a bit of ginger vodka. Not so much on work mornings though!

    I am pretty fond of this Coffee Liquor that I made in early spring. It makes a delicious Iced coffee drink as well 🙂

    I hope you will consider enjoying those drinks in one of our new reusable red cups. They are dishwasher safe and can be used over and over again. We even have a red cup on a wine stem which would be perfect for these canned concoctions!
